Default Selling organs to survive

According to the European Society For Organ Transplantation (ESOT), the average age of an illegal organ "donor" is 28.9 years old, from the world's developing countries, earning an annual income of $480. The average organ recipient is 48.1 years old, from the world's developed countries, with an annual income of $53,000. Observers say the illegal trade is only expanding as diabetes, obesity, and other ailments are causing kidney failure a debilitating condition known as end-stage renal disease to rise throughout the world.
